Another Beautiful Unique Self

In my last post I wrote about my beloved teacher, Barbara Everett, one who in my view fully embodied her own uniqueness.

In previous blogs, I've written about the natural process of individuation, where we create a persona, that we call the False Self Pattern (FSP), which we present to the world as if it were a true picture of who we are. We've discussed how this pattern creates a contraction that keeps us from revealing our irreducibly unique expression of the Love Intelligence that is the initiating energy of all that is. The FSP seems to be built on an original conclusion, drawn when we first recognize … [Read More...]
